11/19   An hour ago I saw this:
         11:02:56 up 21 days,  7:30, 28 users,  load average: 595.04, 732.07,
        What happened?

        And now "top" says:
        Mem:   2076388k total,  1935992k used,   140396k free,  184428k buffers
        Swap:  3903784k total,      104k used,  3903680k free,  531404k cached
        Only 104K swap space used out of 3.9G?  That's strange.
        \_ lulz
       \_ the   reason Soda keeps screwing up is        the LDAP server that ssh
          needs to communicate    with to  let you      log in,  'keg', is always
           screwing up.            politely ask politburo   to fix      this situation.
           And      your next point... I am not sure        'free'      or 'top'        means what
           you      think it  means in linux.    the OS     is possibly smarter than you
           might think    about freeing up       memory     for use.
           \_ your emacs fu is low
        \_ I miss the days when SODA went down, there is actually a public
           motd that explains what happened.
        \_ Maybe Soda needs a cron job that reboots every week.

4/8     What's a good free e-mail provider? I don't want to use Gmail,
        Yahoo, Outlook, or any of those sites with features I never use that
        track my personal info and keep changing their interface. I want just
        simple e-mail without privacy issues or all the baggage these large,
        for-profit companies are adding. I might even be willing to pay.

9/4     It looks like there are some issues with wallall at the moment. Any
        plans for it getting fixed? I can run wall, but wallall just gives an

9/26    I remember there was web version of the motd with search function
        (originally due to kchang ?).  The last time I used it it was hosted
        on the csua website but I can't remember its url (onset of dementia?)
        now. Can somebody plz post it, tnx.
           \_ for some reason I couldn't log in since Sept and the archiver

4/19    Motd updater thingy seems to be broken, does anyone know why?
        If not, I will take a look later in the day. -ausman

2/6     Um, what happened to ?
        "The requested URL /~myname/ was not found on this server."
        \_ Try emailing root or politburo. I don't think that the
           undergrads use this machine anymore. -ausman
        \_ Ausman is mostly right. LDAP went down due to an expired cert and
           took down most of the rest of our stuff. It's probably a thing with

2/24    What newsreader should I use on soda?
        \_ USENIX? You serious? Everyone switched to RSS.
           \_ I think you mean usenet not usenix.  usenet was generally much
              better than blogs / rss (cf. comp.lang.c, comp.lang.perl,
              the usenet oracle, alt.* with digg, slashdot, etc.)
